A Unique, Personal and Special Gift - Hooray Heroes Personalised Book


Choosing the 'perfect' gift can be a challenge sometimes, but it's hard to go wrong with a personalised book. Recently we were introduced to the wonderful Hooray Heroes personalised books which allow you to completely customise your book so it is 100% unique to you and your family. You can write your child's name, choose their gender, choose their hairstyle, eye colour and skin tone. You can even add glasses and freckles. And what's even more, is that in their best selling story, the one that we are sharing here, you can do the exact same for the parents to make your book even more personal.

Life In Lockdown


I've been meaning to document my recent feelings for a while now but it feels like there just hasn't been the time to. I guess that's a weird thing to say considering we've been mostly at home for what is now ten weeks. But during those ten weeks, we've had both the boys at home with us and so have been trying to juggle looking after them physically and emotionally whilst also trying to home school them and take care of the house, our full-time work and our own mental wellbeings. 

The coronavirus lockdown has been SUCH a rollercoaster of emotions. We've had some absolutely lovely days and on those days I feel so thankful to have this extra time together. I've enjoyed the slower pace of life and I've enjoyed not having to feel like I need to be anywhere in particular. I love that we've embraced the simplicity of life and have found so much comfort in things like nature and the things that we already have without feeling like we need to keep adding or do 'more'. 

Ethan's birthday was a highlight - of course, we missed having friends and family there to celebrate with, but we proved to ourselves that you can have just as much fun at home altogether if you get creative. It's mostly turned me grey I won't lie, but I've even at times enjoyed the planning of home learning for the boys. When it comes to getting them to do the actual learning, it really has depended on their moods and admittedly some days have been a real struggle, but I've also quite enjoyed some of it.

25 At-Home Date Night Ideas


When you have young children it can be a challenge to set up and sort out date nights with your partner, especially if you don't have friends and or family on hand to help with childcare. And whilst there are lots of fantastic childcare services and ways to find local centres using sites like Toddle (for those of you in Australia), sometimes, and especially during this strange time we're in at the moment when most of us have been advised to stay at home due to COVID19, an at-home date night is the best way to enjoy some special close time together with your loved one.
